COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true English Indian Pale Ale. Our Raj IPA is created with a medium body and finishes dry and bitter – possibly even more so than your Uncle Sal after you broke his window when you were eleven. Our English IPA has an intense hop flavor and high hop bitterness. The lofty hop level was originally required so the ale would stay preserved and survive the voyage around Africa during the English occupation of India in the 18th century.

Draft at brewery. I thought this was fantastic. My previous experiences with Hop Knot were not charming, but this was really great. Nice citrus, light floral and very clean and bright hop flavors like a tart harvest ale. I was very impressed, and this wasnt even my first beer of the night. This batch is SOLID.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2008
On tap in Tempe. Deep copper color pour with a nice foamy white head that lasts a while. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, with some sweet malt coming through. Flavor is well balanced between the malt and hops. Not too sweet, but not a hop bomb either. Light on the palate with a slight bitter finish. A very drinkable IPA.

draft @ the brewpub. Most flavorful offering of the lot but nothing to write home about.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Hand bottle, courtesy SoLan, via Flaco Alto. Pours a clear golden-amber color with a small, foamy, eggshell colored head. Traces of wispy, sticky lace mark the glass. The aroma shows notes of grapefruit and pine, but with a substantial toffee and biscuit malt base to provide balance. Flavors were similarly straightforward, lightly sweet toffee and caramel malts cut with bitter pine and citrus hops. Very simple. Medium bodied and low to moderate carbonation. Overall, a fairly underwhelming brew. Decent.

3.3
egajdzis (6673) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Poured a clear, dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, tropical fruits, toast, and a bit of citrus. Taste of dry, toasted dough, citrus fruits, caramel malts, pine, and a sweeter, grapefruit finish.

3.6
hopdog (12833) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Hand bottle thanks to FlacoAlto. Poured a deeper golden color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, and floral. Tastes of citrus, pine, and light caramel in the back groudn.

3.2
nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2008
Pours a rich amber from the tap at Four Peaks with a tim off-white head. Mild hops in the nose and on the palate, which cause me to question this beer’s classification as an IPA, but the addition of sweet malts to this brew make it balanced and highly drinkable.

3.4
Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2008
On tap at Scottsdale location. Pours a medium amber with a lasting cream head and spotty lacing. Nose is malt and floral hops. Taste is sweet ripe citrus for the most part with a slight bitter pine finish. Medium mouth feel. Decent IPA.
